4.0 out of 5 stars Almost excellent., 25 May 2013

This review is from: White Tiger [DVD] (DVD)
When I first tried to write a review for this film, I ended up writing an essay instead, as the film (or the first 90% of it anyway) made a great impression on me. OK, so here's the abridged version. Good points: Tank enthusiasts will love it. T34's, SU's, JS's, in abundance. Even British and American tanks are present,but they're either stationary or wrecked. The tiger itself seems to be modelled on the rare Porsche type with extra armour added. Tons of attention to detail.The tanks, equipment, scenery, everything looks right and the film is superbly shot and convincing. I only saw one instance of a Panzer 4 with a T34 suspension in a short shot,easily missed. Battle sequences and acting excellent. Reality check: Would your tank gun barrel really split open if you fired it when there was mud stuck in the end? I could see this might happen with high explosive shells which detonated on impact,but if you're attacking a tiger you'd be firing AP shot,which wouldn't. Hmmmmm! Humorous addition: In a short scene,a tanker is seen wearing a top hat over his usual headgear. An underhand tribute to Porta from the excellent war novels of Sven Hassel? Bad Points: The last 10% of the film. What happened there? Suddenly the War's over, nothing's resolved or explained, end of film, full stop. After the glorious overload of the senses in the first part of the film I felt very cheated. In short, a remarkable film which could have been a war winner, but let down by the abrupt ending.
